Responsible Gaming a Priority for IGA Members

17th annual Responsible Gaming Education Week, Aug. 4-8, sends important message of support. 

For the 15th consecutive year, Governor Terry Branstad issued a Proclamation designating the first full week in August as Responsible Gaming Education Week, an event held in conjunction with the American Gaming Association

It highlights the commitment of the owners and employees of Iowa's 18 commercial casinos to promote a positive gaming entertainment experience with patrons and within their community. This week, they will pay extra attention to promoting the importance of responsible gaming. The IGA and its members realize that education is critical to promoting responsible play and increasing awareness of gambling disorders. Plus, this week will highlight ongoing efforts to increase awareness of the 800 Bets Off helpline


In addition to sparking conversations about responsible gambling in the home, on the job and in the community, RGEW is promoting characteristics of responsible gambling, which include: 

  • Partaking in gambling as a way to socialize and have fun with friends and family 
  • Setting a budget before starting to gamble
  • Knowing that the house stands greater odds of winning than the gambler
This year’s RGEW theme is “Getting to Know Responsible Gaming.” A common theme the IGA advocates is "betting with your head and not over it." For more information on responsible gambling, visit the Resources tab on our site or read our press release.
